I have had a quick look at the markup and the CSS, but I haven't
actually had a look at the PHP. I laughed when I saw the Mozilla guys
had an IE style sheet, but then I figured they were probably just
reusing code. I was actually wondering if I could have a local copy of
the remora code or access to a development or testing environment at
I also agree that we need a common branding for all of the sites, Gnome
is a great example I think Mozilla and Ubuntu are good examples to. I
think a splash page for www.sugarlabs.org built on WordPress or Drupal
would be a really good idea also. It could explain the what the project
is, have a download link to the latest version, link to the wiki, press
release, news etc.
